Our Story

Each Lead Star consultant is a U.S. military Veteran: As ordinary people put into extraordinary situations, we discovered that leadership is not innate—it can be developed. Since our founding, we have partnered with organizations to cultivate that skill, focusing on creative solutions and service-based leadership that empowers individuals to be authentic, proactive, and accountable.

Our Team

Led by co-founders Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch—both former Captains in the U.S. Marine Corps—Lead Star consultants bring a unique combination of academic, military, and business experience. We form adaptive, collaborative partnerships, and we’ll do whatever it takes to understand your challenges—whether that means shadowing your manufacturing line or working in an oil-field in subzero temperatures.

Industry Leaders

As leaders of the industry, Courtney Lynch and Angie Morgan serve as Directors for the Center for Creative Leadership’s Partner Network, an innovative program that provides independent consultancies the opportunity to affiliate with CCL, gain access to its exclusive leadership development tools and resources, and receive business coaching to assist them with marketing their services and growing their business.
